Spores are now detectable on all monitor farms, but a lack of moisture is keeping counts ‘in check’ for now…

February 8, 2019

Grass samples tested this week from the MVS Monitor Farms have shown the following :

  • Hinuera – 6,600 spores/gram
  • Matamata – 4,000 spores/gram
  • Te Poi – 6,600 spores/gram
  • Tirau – 10,000 spores/gram
  • Walton – 11,600 spores/gram


While these spore counts are not currently considered a significant challenge, rain (when it does arrive) will trigger an explosive increase in spore counts. Make sure you are prepared.
